Interesting, thanks for the post ! I wonder if PK will attend ?
She has to. They never parole a person that does not show up.
But if she's not going to get paroled, what's the point? ilot:
I can see her not showing up.
Last thing I heard about her is that she is truly remorseful and has accepted her fate to be in prison for life. (That was from Bret's no-defunct site I think) Maybe she will decide to just not put the victims through it?? Time will tell.
With Susan's plea for compassion rejected and with Bruce's parole similarly blocked, I can't see how she would ever get anywhere close. I imagine now that she is America's longest serving female prisoner. IMHO, she certainly is the most believable when quizzed during parole hearings, although I must say the brevity of some of her answers left me a little cold.
Not sure how this stroy relates to PK's parole hearing, but I do find something interesting in this story. A suicide every 8 days, divided by 365 days equals roughly 45 suicides a year. That sounds like a lot. But, if you use their estimate of approximately 147,000 inmates, that is approximately .00030 percent suicide rate within that population. Far less than many societies. The story, and arguement, does not state the reasons for the suicides. Is it lack of medical care, living conditions, mental illness, guilt, or what? This is a very slanted ruling that is being argued and reviewed, and hopefully one that does not survive.
